Título Costs by industry and diagnosis among musculoskeletal claims in a State workers compensation system: 1999-2004
Información bibliográfica 2010, Vol.53, p.276-284. 37 ref.
Resumen Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) represent an important burden on industry in the United States. However, there is limited understanding of the unique issues relating to specific industry sectors, specifically the frequency and costs of different MSDs. In this study, claim data from 1999 to 2004 from the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation were analyzed as a function of industry sector and anatomical region. Almost 50% of the claims were lumbar spine (26.9%) or hand/wrist (21.7%). The majority of claims were from manufacturing (25.1%) and service (32.8%) industries. The industries with the highest average costs per claim were transportation, warehouse, and utilities and construction. Across industries, the highest costs per claim were consistently for the lumbar spine, shoulder and cervical spine body regions.
